We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject:  Intro A/V Materials

I'd like to compile a list or bibliography of A/V materials (films,
videos, CDs, etc.) suitable for introductory linguistics classes (both
intro courses for general students and early courses for linguistics
majors).

If you use any such materials regularly and successfully, please
forward (to my private e-mail, below) the title and format.  If
possible, please also include running times, producer/distributer
information, and any comments about the work or how you use it that
you want to share.

I'm told TEACH-LING may already have such a list.  If anyone
participates in TEACH-LING and is willing to share, I'd appreciate it.
Naturally I will be happy to share the results of this query with
LINGUIST.

I would like to know what you think or, also, information about what
can be the biological base for such tiny language units as are
phonems. Well, let me explain it better, phonems have an articulatory
aspect wich is biological, may be to this respect it is more relevant
the mode of articulation (stop, fricative) than the point of
articulation (labial, dental, alveolar, etcetera. There is also a
biological aspect in hearing.  Nevertheless, what I try to ask for is
if are known or if there are theories about the neurological aspects
either of phonems perception or of generation and how is the
capability to use phonems relatable to the genetic and epigenetic
questions. Particularly if phonems could be considered innate or if
they depend in other features like a deeper capability for patterns
cognition and abstraction (relational asociation of different kinds of
perceptions).

I hope to have been able to clarify enought the interrogation.  I wait
for your ideas or information.

Your cordially,
                                                            mariano
